Favorite Day Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

So I guess somebody had a bunch of pumpkin cheesecake left over in Target's warehouses from the last product I reviewed, so they decided to throw it into a vat of fresh ice cream and make a new fall flavor.

Actually, I wish that's what happened. This product would have been markedly better had it contained big wads of that pumpkin cheesecake from the last review. 

As it is, there's only graham cracker bits scattered through the dessert. It's "pumpkin cheesecake flavored" ice cream. But there's not really any real cheesecake in it. Maybe graham crackers hold up better than real cheesecake when floating in ice cream for some reason..? They definitely bring a bit of crunch, which is nice, but I'd trade the grit of graham for the decadence of real cheesecake any day of the week. Still, it's a good flavor, and the graham cracker pieces almost get the job done.

On the plus side, there is real pumpkin in the mix, as well as a near-perfect balance of pumpkin spice flavors like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove. The ice cream is nice and sweet, rich, and smooth. It's almost on par with the apple crisp ice cream we looked at a month or so ago in terms of overall quality, though I have to say I'd reach for that apple flavor again before I'd grab another pint of this offering.

That's not to say it's bad. If you've got a pumpkin spice jones and need to get your fix, this dairy treat will absolutely hit the spot. Maybe it's still warm where you are. Maybe you're not into apple as much as pumpkin. If so, I say check this product out. $2.49 for the pint.

I give this ice cream 7 out of 10 stars.
